Here I have prepared my recipe for semolina pudding for you. Most of us know the children’s porridge, prepared with soft wheat semolina.

Today I would like to invite you to a change of perspective. The semolina porridge can be prepared from a variety of cereal products.

Corn semolina and buckwheat semolina offer exciting variations. At the same time these products are gluten-free and are good for the stomach.

Buckwheat in particular gives off a lot of flavor. I only got buckwheat groats and in the following paragraph I will explain the small and subtle differences to flour, semolina and groats.

The preparation time for this dish is less than 10 minutes. This time it took me a whole day because I had visitors.

Together with Tomas Wild we tried out the new Lumix S5 camera and took some wonderful pictures. More about this will follow soon elsewhere.

Before you get bored, let’s just get going. I think I can promise you the one or other new look at the Kinderbrei.

I wish you a lot of fun and success, please send me a message, I am looking forward to it!

1. Semolina Pudding Variants with Semolina or Groats

Flour, semolina and groats differ in their degree of grinding.

Flour is the finest product, semolina is ground to a size of 0.3-1 mm, the groats are slightly larger and may be ground more irregularly.

Buckwheat is a gluten-free pseudo grain also named Turkish wheat.

I especially like the earthy and yet fine taste.

1 pc Banana (optional berry fruit, apple, pear or plum)
1 tbs Nuts (Walnuts or other nuts or chia seeds)

Porridge Ingredients

200 g Soya milk (whole milk, oat milk or rice milk)
1 tsp butter (I also like to use ghee or nut butter)

Preparing Fruit and Nuts

Still life fruit
Depending on the season, you can add plums, berries, apples and bananas.

Select fruits

After the season get fruit, wash and dry it or put it in the kitchen.

Kramellized bananas

Caramelize fruits

Cut the fruit into bite-sized, appealing pieces and either leave them natural or caramelise them with sugar.

I usually use a Crème Brûlée distiller for this.

Caramelized apple wedges

Caramelize fruits

You can also caramelize the fruit pieces in a pan.

I like to do this with the plums or with the apple wedges.

nuts on a wooden plate
Walnut kernels, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, Brazil nuts and pumpkin seeds are ideal as a supplement.

Select nuts

Think of the nuts and seeds and make a selection for yourself.

Raisins or goji berries are just as perfect!

4. Special Ingredients for Semolina Pudding

You need milk, salt, sugar, optional vanilla sugar, nuts and fruit for your porridge. For the decoration you can use mint or pomegranate seeds. I have added the ingredients below…

When it comes to sugar, I only use whole cane sugar or honey. I like the taste and use it where I can instead of white industrial sugar.

Whole cane sugar
Whole cane sugar is prepared from sugar cane. The natural sugar is exciting in taste and is said to be healthier than white industrial sugar.
Himalayan salt
An example of unpurified and original salt is the pink Himalayan salt. Unpurified salt contains more than 80 minerals that are good for us!
